Looking for the latest Rosehill blackbookers and horses to follow from Rosehill Sydney meeting? Our Sydney racing expert Alex Marsh gives us the eyecatchers after Saturday racing at Rosehill.

Rosehill Blackbookers July 25

Race Six: Travest (Fifth): Not much has gone this gelding's way since a brilliant fresh win over the six furlongs at Warwick Farm on June 17 which followed a slashing debut victory back in January.

By Tavistock and out of a group three winning miler in Glamourous Girl, Travest is bred to thrive in the eight to ten furlong range which his latest efforts are also supporting.

Whilst improvement is expected over them aformetioned distances, he was more a victim of circumstance on this occasion where jockey Tommy Berry stayed towards the inside and worst part of the track whereas the winner Dancing Gidget came swooping down the outside.

In that inferior going, Travest was still able to record a 34.65 last 600m which was the second quickest race outside Dancing Gidget and if you swap the runs, you swap the result.
Race Seven: Mugatoo (first) & Taikmochi (third): For what will perhaps be different assignments going forward, both of these gallopers can be supported further into their campaigns.

Mugatoo is a classy import who quickly worked his way through the grades in his first Australian preparation with a Canberra Cup victory making it a winning hat-trick at start number three in the country and proved his class yet again with a soft fresh victory here.

There will be spring aspirations now for this five-year-old who recorded a 34.07 last 600m when making ground from the rear off a soft tempo and he still has plenty of improvement to come.

Taikomochi followed up a sound fresh return with another placing and whilst these trips are a little on the short side at present, early September features such as the Wyong Gold Cup would be right down his alley where he can hopefully find firmer footing.
Race Nine: Minted (Third): This three-year-old was rising massively in grade from a Class 1 win at Newcastle on June 6 with the drop in trip from 1200m to 1100m here also being unfavourable.

After a slightly tardy getaway, Minted worked early under jockey Tim Clark just to tack on to the field and was another unlucky galloper throughout the day to have drawn an inside alley and as such, wasn't able to find the better ground out wide.

Although he couldn't reel in Varda (completed a winning hat-trick) and Partners (had won his last two outings), he was able to safely hold He's A Shotshot on the line despite it finding the better part of the circuit and the first four home were clearing out somewhat from the rest of the field.

The preparation has been spaced out to date for Minted who with a rating of only 70, has plenty of room to move and will be suited by stepping back up to six furlongs next time out.
